Tax apprenticeship

The work of HMRC (Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs) touches the lives of every single adult and business in the UK, from students and single parents, to the largest multinational corporations.

HMRC needs highly trained tax professionals at all levels of the organisation to maximise tax revenues at the lowest overall cost to customers, while also stabilising and improving the experience that customers have when they deal with HMRC.

The Advanced-level apprenticeship in Tax will train you in one of two roles: tax caseworker or tax/policy specialist. As a tax caseworker, your duties will include supporting risk-based quality compliance checks into the tax affairs of businesses, employers and individuals. You will undertake research into specific tax-related issues, to assist in enquiry work, either for specific customers or customer populations. As a tax/policy specialist on the other hand, you will be responsible for drafting and maintaining high-quality, customer-focused guidance for HMRC and its external customers. You will support the development and implementation of new policies or amendments and changes to existing policies.

Completion of the tax apprenticeship will provide you with the entry requirements for a number of middle- and senior-level tax professional roles.
